Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams remain in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. Decisions about official EMI travel (including project travel) domestically and internationally are being made on a case-by-case basis by Office Directors in locations concerned. EMI’s worldwide offices remain in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus as an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Fall 2021

Freedom's Promise is a ministry that works at the Cambodian-Thailand border to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ, prevent human trafficking, and restore communities. Join with EMI as we help Freedom's Promise to build a campus that will serve their community for decades to come!

Project Scope

Freedom's Promise and their ministry teams have spent more than a decade invested in the Cambodian border town of Poipet. Out of a deep longing to show the love of Jesus to their community and prevent human trafficking, they have established programs focused on trafficking awareness, healthcare, spiritual restoration, income generation and vocational training, and education.

As the team and ministry has grown, they have eagerly looked forward to a purpose-built space that invites the community to participate and discover the reasons for joy, root of love, and the promise of freedom brought to us by Jesus. That space is now emerging.

EMI is working with Freedom's Promise and Partner Architects to transform a 0.4 hectare site into a thriving and vibrant campus. Phase One is already underway, with land purchased and being prepared for further construction. EMI is now ready to begin the engineering design for Phases 2 and 3, which will feature:

  • A soccer field for sports ministry
  • A multi-story school and training building
  • A multi-purpose auditorium space
  • and several utility structures to support future campus development

EMI Cambodia will be developing detailed construction documents over the next several months, and is looking for volunteers to help our in-house team with the electrical, plumbing and structural design.
